Biology Olympiad Strategies Book

Recently, I published my very first book, How To Prepare for the Biology Olympiad And Science Competitions. Head to Amazon to purchase either a Kindle or paperback version. In this short article, I will share a small review of what you can find in the book.

Science competitions test a student’s level of knowledge, power of scientific reasoning, and analytical thinking outside of the regular school curriculum. A systematic approach and smart study regimen are both required to get good results in science competitions. This is where my book comes into the picture. 😉

In this book, you will find many tips and tricks for how to study and prepare for science olympiads. Moreover, you will learn how to:

• boost your motivation

• cope with failures and anxiety before the tests

• defeat procrastination

• manage your time

• memorize information quicker and more effectively

• organize your study material

• read a science textbook

• plan your study schedule

• develop practical skills

• get into and survive in the lab.

Furthermore, you will find essential test-taking strategies for tackling the olympiad exams and example-based tips on how to develop critical thinking and problem solving skills.
